Where to start, first read the reviews on this, they are accurate. Its not a hike by any means but a Climb up cliffs of roots, mud, and ropes. You will be covered in mud by the time you come back down. The trip to the top starts off up a nice a size trail but quickly the trail becomes... More

This hike was awesome! We almost skipped it since all the reviews made it sound like it was more pain than it was worth...but we were so glad we did it. I loved the fact that it was more of a climb than a hike and it was a different kind of challenge. It wasn't very difficult at all, just... More

Climbed with my bf on the second day of our visit. Very muddy and difficult at parts - get ready to get your hands dirty - but the view at the top was worth it all. We began hiking at 7:45am and were back at our hotel by 11 (1.5hrs each way). Important to wear shoes with good traction!! It... More

We hiked Nevis peak with Kenneth Dore, booked through Reggie Douglas' company. It's a challenging hike, plenty of ascents with ropes. We got very muddy. We went up one way and down another (up and down same way is more common) . The ascent is a barely marked trail, but the descent, well our guide was using a machete to... More

We climbed the volcano 2 days ago with Ervin Weekes as our guide and found it far more exhilarating than we expected! Ervin was a terrific guide - very knowledgeable, helpful, easy going. We kept a steady pace and arrived at the peak in just under 2 hours. It was very challenging - not at all a hike - definitely... More

"Nevis Peak Hike" sounds so docile...how hard can it be? It's on a small island and only 3232 feet. Turns out this "hike" is not for the faint of heart. We booked a Nevis Island legend "Reggie" as our guide and we are so glad we did. A guide is a must for first timers as it's easy to get... More

Catherine came back exhilarated and exhausted! She hired a guide through the Hermitage and two other travelers came along, she said it was straight up at times but wouldn't trade the experience for the world!

It takes approximately 2 hours each way, and some sections are scrambles up a stream or over wet rocks. Some of it is also steep and all of it is wet. You will however see an amazing range of trees, perhaps some vervet monkeys and maybe even be visited by a mongoose during lunch at the top. The crater is... More

Was a fantastic journey up and down the mountain, but make no mistake it is not a leisurely hike. It is climbing up rocks, and vines, through jungles and crevasses. And I would not recommend that anyone do it alone. I had many scrapes and bruised from the hike, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Our guide was... More

You should believe everything you read about this being difficult. It is muddy, wet, and challenging! Overall it was amazing though when you reached the top. Make sure you ask for Reggie to be your guide. He is phenomenal
